    Elon Musk Responds To Tweet From Arizona Republican Kari Lake

    Published on

    Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, gained notoriety after he replied to a tweet from Republican Kari Lake in Arizona.

    A tweet from Lake, a failed 2022 midterm candidate for governor of Arizona, questioned Musk on why it looked like people were unable to retweet, like, or comment on a tweet that contained a link to a story on her recently filed, 70-page suit against Maricopa County.

    “Is Twitter still suppressing election criticism & news? Notice how the ReTweet/Comment/Like features are disabled on the tweet about my Election Lawsuit? @elonmusk what’s up with this??” Tweets from Lake.

    Musk reacted to Lake by elaborating on his perspective on the subject. Musk has demonstrated that he is approachable and eager to discuss issues with Twitter users.

    “Reasonable criticism of elections and judicial challenges are, of course, lawful. That seems to be the case here. Clear incitement to violence will result in suspension and significant deception should result in a @CommunityNotes correction,” Musk tweeted.

    Lake and Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ victory in the governor’s election has been legally challenged.

    Lake is adamant that her case is “exceptional” and that, if necessary, she is prepared to “take it all the way to the Supreme Court.”

    Last Monday, Hobbs certified her own victory over Lake in front of departing Republican Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona, the state’s attorney general Mark Brnovich, and the state’s top judge Robert Brutinel.

    “We’re ready to go with what we believe to be an exceptional lawsuit. And we believe we will be victorious in that lawsuit,” Lake said in response to Steve Bannon’s question on Real America’s Voice’s “War Room” segment.

    “We’ll take it all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to. We will not stop fighting,” she added.

    As a result of a federal judge’s criticism and subsequent penalties imposed after filing an election-related case, and after being selected by then-President Barack Obama, Lake’s campaign responded angrily earlier this month.

    Prior to last week, U.S. District Judge John Tuchi of the District of Arizona rejected a lawsuit filed by Lake and Republican candidate for secretary of state Mark Finchem. Tuchi had earlier this year rejected the claim.

    More on this story via The Conservative Brief:

    “Imposing sanctions, in this case, is not to ignore the importance of putting in place procedures to ensure that our elections are secure and reliable,” Tuchi wrote in his order. “It is to make clear that the Court will not condone litigants ignoring the steps that Arizona has already taken toward this end and furthering false narratives that baselessly undermine public trust at a time of increasing disinformation about, and distrust in, the democratic process.

    “It is to send a message to those who might file similarly baseless suits in the future,” Tuchi’s order noted further. CONTINUE READING…
